  1. This is definitely Jackie Chan's greatest movie in terms of stunts. It's also very funny in parts. 

    He is able to slide down a steep hill and get bad guys to stop a hijacked bus. I didn't find it awfully realistic how they basically catapult themselves through the windows, though.

    The dubbing in some versions isn't too great. He is sometimes named Kevin in certain prints, but just simply Jackie in others. In 1996's "First Strike" (technically, the fourth and final entry), he is only called Jackie. 


  2. If you don't like a person that you've never even met, for example, why would you feel motivated to make 6,783,578 accounts and/or posts to attempt to annoy somebody online? For an estimated 20 to 7 years, too.

    Some people don't have a life and are clearly in the OCD category.

    Yeah. One guy does it to me every week. It's just really sad.

  3. Recently, I watched it, and I thought it provided quality fan service. Although if you're not a huge RE fan or just not one at all, then it won't be for you, I suppose.

    At one point, Chris talks about losing Piers, the sidekick he had in his unit in RE6. Jill looks the same as in the recent (although pretty terrible) remake of the third game, but that's because of the T-Virus slowing down the aging process. However, they don't quite touch on it in the movie. She just feels bad for having helped Wesker.

    Anyway, go check it out. 

  4. Yeah. This is kind of low.

    As someone who knows how seedy Capcom can be, don't be in any way shocked if you have to pay for the DLC story with Ada called Separate Ways when it eventually becomes available. That really annoyed people in 2005, because of the exclusivity "promise" Shinji Miami went back on.

    At the time, he really didn't want the main game being released on anything besides the GameCube. Maybe that wasn't his fault, though.

    Later on, the extra material was only available in the PS2 release, which had to be unlocked. Maybe that was Capcom's bright idea. Either way, he was none too thrilled that he had this happen.

    It's sad he left his own studio months ago, as The Evil Within felt like it had potential. But I'll forever be grateful he made RE into such a big franchise. 

  5. My mum had a seizure today. She's in the hospital for observation. 🏥

    My sister called me today, to say she was with her when this happened. 😧

    Unfortunately, my mother has an aortic aneurysm. She has, I believe, suffered three strokes in the last 16 months... 

    Been on weekly dialysis since March of last year.


  6. Great White

    One of those Jaws clones that faced the wrath of Universal for being an alleged rip off. They even attempted to ban it from being released. When this initially failed, it was showing in the theaters for a month, until a judge pulled the plug.

    But it isn't that great. 🦈

  7. I think the problem with modern media as a whole is that they put in a lot of unnecessary things like gay and lesbian people kissing or dating, like anybody cares. It's like they want a group of characters to feel as mixed as possible. This is something the director of Days Gone claims made the game get all these woke attacks. When like I said, none of that matters to me.

    Even in similar games like The Last of Us Part II, every SJW person loves that game because of the themes it puts across with making women tougher than usual. But I love it because it's a thrilling experience and one of Naughty Dog's best titles to date, despite the death of Joel. Not because Ellie and her girlfriend are making out, or because you have a transgender kid helping you. 

    Honestly could care less about these people's sexual orientation in a movie or game where their goal is usually to run away or get slain by the killers, or something lurking in the forest. LOL. Unless you're the hero that overcomes the problem. But still. 

    Yeah. RE7 was a decent effort. Still hate what they did to Chris by not hiring an actor similar to the guy who portrayed him in RE5 and 6. It doesn't look like him much, because of his face and the voice is different. But it was a more commendable effort than the last slew of sequels. Especially RE6, where Capcom just didn't know what the hell they were doing. 

    But if they can keep it up, RE will be restored to its old glory by RE10. The new animated movie looks like a fan's dream come true with Jill, Leon, Chris, Claire and Rebecca teaming up, so this is something to take note of if you're working with Capcom. 

  8. I've been getting to the point where I'm really just so tired of hearing about many remakes of old horror games being developed. Especially with Capcom's handling of their remakes of Resident Evil 2 onwards with the story aspects undergoing changes, and whatnot, this indicates that I'm more sick of it than ever. And I mean, I played the original PS1 era games countless times in my younger years. I'd rather get new games in their respective series, or even something completely new and surprising, provided those games are trying to honour the franchise they are connected to. I don't mind.

    Perhaps these remakes (or the more appropriate term, reimaginings) help to bring the series to a modern audience, sure. If anything, gamers today may not like to play classic horror games due to the fixed camera angles, low resolution graphics and tank controls, preferring the over-the-shoulder way of things in full HD, or first person even. So it is beneficial to them. But decades long fans like myself know that the remakes have a lot of unnecessary changes, repeated cutscenes and boss battles, and whatever else.

    But after paying £500 for a PS5, I feel I would rather see the potential for more brilliant games like a Days Gone 2, The Last of Us Part III, or whatever. But instead, we're getting remakes of RE games being churned out in the wrong order, Silent Hill 2, Alone in the Dark, and others. While these games may admittedly be quite successful and play well, they are not *new* ideas, as such. Unless something gets changed, we already know James Sunderland hated Mary, and he ended her life out of pity for her. How can they put this across in a different way so that it feels unique?

    To tell you the truth, I don't even find the RE universe in general to be all that scary any longer, especially after RE8 with the tall vampire lady nonsense, or the ugly, living doll-like person hiding in the sitting room, and the other weirdness that plagued the game. It was just incredibly dumb. So I reckon I'd rather play other horror games, because all the RE games feature returning heroes who are veterans, so you always just get cheesy lines now and too much guns to blast up stuff, and repetitive ideas means you get little in the way of a new experience. Because essentially, every game is just about a virus spreading, but with a new letter at the start. Like the new K-Virus, or something.

    This is why the games just aren't creepy enough any more for my personal taste. Everything is getting recycled. Although the mutant baby thing you have chasing Ethan Winters in RE8 was kind of clever, the game did have a werewolves shooting section with Chris Redfield, which felt random and just added in for a bit of your bog standard, typical fan service. 

    Besides remaking games, Capcom has long had a history of trying to rip things off from other games in general. This is definitely the case with RE8 having mannequins, that act like the nurses in the Silent Hill games. I also got a lot of P.T. vibes from exploring that house as well. But if you tell anybody that on GameFAQs, they imply you're stupid for pointing that out.

    But take it from me: RE has lost the edge it once had. I've grown so fed up of moaning about it on forums, that I've basically gone and found other games to enjoy that have better graphics and are way more scary, tense, and interesting. I'm gonna be all the better for it.

    Look at Stray Souls, for example. That's an upcoming indie game that looks like it has way better combat mechanics than any of the recent RE sequels. And of course, there's the remake of Dead Space and Alan Wake 2. Yet another big budget game that looks to be taken the survival horror sub-category seriously again...

  9. Yeah. I think it's just a news dump forum now, to promote upcoming games. I find most gaming forums are just not active any more to make sticking around on them worthwhile. This is because they became less popular once Facebook and Twitter grew so large.

    I know what you mean about the snappy moderators. I asked the main admin to once again get rid of this guy from Australia, who was impersonating my friend from my college days in a profile which he could still log into. Then he came back with the same name, just reversed like a mirror. My mate and I made some low key films, and this guy basically stalks me and floods this anxiety related site with my address while using my previous user names because they were not yet registered, as well as ones he just made up to abuse me.

    Of course, he keeps on saying he is not this troll in Australia. This is a lie though, because I found pictures of him once and an IP address from a Kiwi network, and I then found his profile on Twitter. That I knew him from prior years was no surprise. So he just chooses to be ignorant, despite being 37 years old and still doing pointless things like spamming on dead forums. Which is what 10 year olds would enjoy doing. Not guys pushing on 40.

    The only really active gaming forum is on GameFAQs or NeoGAF, but the users there on the former are just shills. When you post something semi-negative, or at least a little bit heated or combative, they say you're somebody's alt. 

    I was kicked off NeoGAF twice. I never had any issues on there. It seems they just ban people for stupid reasons. But at my age and with my mother being in a bad way, I only post on forums occasionally to counter the cravings, or I would be in my flat all day doing nothing but watching movies. Because I mean, in real life, I have not got the slightest idea how to fit in with anyone, as I have ASD. And I find people with ASD usually have to be friends with other ASD related people, as the normal people are too mainstream. It makes life feel lonely, empty, and whatnot, when you cannot get a spouse either.

    Being hurt by various people like ex support workers did not do anything to improve my situation. But the clock is ticking for me to start enjoying my life, while I am still fairly young. It's just that everyone is vying for something, and they win every single time. You feel like you have no chance.

  10. Anyone been to this gaming forum?


    I think I was among the top 20 people to sign up there, which I think was back in 2019.

    Lately I have wondered about the forum overall; I keep seeing replies in threads that look like a bot was replying rather than writing like how a proper user would. Very generic.

    Much of the new members are getting banned on there, so I am sceptical. 

  11. I know. It's hard to grasp why they couldn't just go with that dumb blue Umbrella storyline RE7 began, instead of the Countess Dracula crap they decided to go with in RE8.

    I gathered they just kept the franchise going years ago, essentially for the money side of it. And I have always had a hard time comprehending why their devoted fans still support them after they got caught copying people's material in the past. Plus, their current engine isn't that great anyway.

    You know? Everything looks too smeared, the plot is an absolute joke, and darkened discoloration is evident in every set piece...

    But hey. In other news. 🙂


  12. I'm cautious myself. 

    One of the upcoming games is set in Japan, but I don't know why. Silent Hill is in Maine, or at least someplace in New England. Now it's like RE and Capcom, where they just use the name to create loosely connected storylines. Because by God, the plot in RE no longer makes any sense. 

    Ethan Winters may as well have been Harry Potter, or Van Helsing. LOL. But now Silent Hill could be in for the same fate.

  13. Hmm...

    I have no idea what this was supposed to be.


    There had been speculation that it was a P.T. style demo, for a new game. But that's all I know, because it began as a rumour that didn't conclude to anything. For all anybody knows, it could be for a game that was in development in secret, before being cancelled.

    The problem with Konami is that they're inclined to announce something, then we get radio silence for ages before getting either wonderful news, or something we dreaded.

    It's always a 50/50 thing.
